Tip: Use a Photo as an elegant Background.
Simply choose Page > Settings in Scrapbook MAX!. Then choose Background Image and Select - browse to your photo.
Then use the Transparency slider to adjust the transparency of your photo, giving it a gauzy effect.
Choose Ok and voila - you have a gorgeous background for your page!
You can even feature the same photo as the subject of your page to make a real statement as in the sample below from tin tin (from Kaye's February "Love My House" Challenge)!
